Question Acan Echinata colors?

Recently I bought an Echinata frag so I can grow it onto a large rock to have a large Echinata rock. The frag is a soft green with lime green streaks and my other much larger one is bright orange with a couple green streaks and few grey/purple spots.
My orange Echinata has thrived for quite a while now and I was wondering if there were other colors out there besides orange or green for them. I've seen some that were mostly grey/purple but they looked bland to me. It's been hard for me to even find orange ones near me, let alone an all green one. I was hoping there may be a red one or maybe a yellow one out there but i don't know if that's possible.

Acans have all sorts of colors. I have some that are red, green, purple, brown, blue, pink, orange, etc, etc.

Every color of the rainbow. Austin Aqua Farms has a nice color selection. they often sell fairly quick, but if you sign up for their newsletter you can get updates when they get new shipments.

Just checked that place out (or rather itís website), but they only had Acan lords. The ones Iím looking for are Acan Echinatas. I have yet to see Acan echinatas that arenít orange, green, or purple.

You can find crazy color ones just depends on how much you want to pay. Also be careful as some people over edit there Sale photos
